Marshall University - West Virginia

Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is a state-supported, community-based medical school established in 1977. Our faculty and administration are committed to providing high quality medical education and graduate training to meet the changing health care needs of our nation’s citizens. We specialize in rural health issues as expressed in special efforts to recruit students from rural West Virginia and place graduates in clinical practice in rural areas. Additionally, because we believe that a diverse population offers a rich environment that leads to greater knowledge, understanding, acceptance and mutual respect, we promote an inclusive environment by attracting, recruiting and retaining individuals who represent varying backgrounds and perspectives.
